Fundamentals of Golf By Jack Nicklaus

Understanding the basics of golf is more challenging that we think….or is it? Jack Nicklaus, arguably the greatest golfer of all time, has a series of videos that discuss many aspects of how to play golf. His first video, which will be highlighted here today, is probably the most important of all because it sets the foundation for our natural golf swing. If you are a beginner, or even an experience player like myself, it is important to heed what Jack says because we can move to more advance aspects of the game with the proper fundamentals.

Shooting Your Best Golf Score Ever Through Visualization

The desire of every golfer on the first tee is to shoot their best round of golf ever.

Not Understanding What Works In My Golf Game

We have all played rounds of golf were everything was working. It just seemed that no matter how we swung the club, the results were better than average. Then, poof we have a very low score and we walk off the course elated. We are “walking on sunshine” (I bet you are humming that song right now); at that moment, all was right in the world.
